Hospital charities call for even more support in 2024

Solihull Editorial 18th Jan, 2024   0

SILHILLINAS are being called on to ‘do more in 2024’ and take part in fundraising activities for local hospitals.

Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity, Heartlands Hospital Charity, Good Hope Hospital Charity and Solihull Hospital Charity have a number of events to get involved with, from thrilling skydives and mountain treks, to bike rides and marathons.

The hospital charity is also holding social events, including an Ascot Race Day in the summer and pub quizzes throughout the year.

Well wishers can fundraise for a ward or department of your choice at your local hospital and all the money you raise will go towards helping patients, their families and staff.

The hospital charity is excited to have charity places on England’s only 100 mile closed road bike ride in 2024, the Ford RideLondon, taking place in May.

The ride starts at Westminster Bridge and takes in many of London’s landmarks before going into the beautiful countryside in Essex and finishing back in Central London at Tower Bridge.

The hospital charity has a limited number of Charity places for the 100mile bike ride as well as the 60mile ride.

Anyone who wants to climb a mountain in 2024 you can join the hospital charity on the adventure of a lifetime with their Northern Lights Trek in Iceland in November.

There are also more local events to take part in, such as the Great Birmingham Run in May.

Mike Hammond, the charity’s chief executive, said, “The new year is the perfect opportunity to set yourself a goal or try something you’ve never done before.

“We are incredibly grateful to the amazing fundraisers who choose to support us.

“Thanks to them, we can continue going over and above for our patients and staff and provide a wide range of added extras that the NHS cannot provide as standard.

“We have a fantastic variety of events this year and I can’t wait to see how all of our fundraisers get on.”
